Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Sorry, Big Brother is now watching

Recent events and side conversations has revealed that we have a potential threat to our "family harmony" (please tell me that doesn't sound to Manson-esque) here. Well, we can limit the potential somewhat in the Chat room. I have instituted a minor inconvenience whereby the next time you visit, you will be asked to provide an e-mail address, the Chatzy folks will then send out a Chatzy password to you which you will be asked to provide before getting to the regular check-in screen for the Dead Zone. These addresses will not be visible to the public or distributed to marketers. You do it once and then just indicate you want the info saved onto your PC and you wont have to do it again. This way, no matter what user name you choose for your session in the chat, it will be tied to one email. If you ever discover someone is posting as you, let me know. There is the "ban" feature to the chat I hope is never necessary to use. I hope this isn't a pain in the ass or an infringement on personal liberties (rasta), I'm just trying to make sure that a few bad apples don't cause any more tension. I certainly hope that self-policing can take care of any problems, but just in case we will have this extra safety measure. Sorry, folks.

i agree there is no excuse for identity theft...but honestly after reading his posts, especially the ones under direwolf they were all very lighthearted the person didnt say anything vulgar or nasty at all

by the way did they block this person from doing it again?

yeah - sdh reset the whole thing after i couldn't get into our chat room earlier today - we couldn't talk long enough to figure out if i did something wrong or if it needed more tweaking on the admin end. (probably me - me computer dumb)

It said it was sending me an email with the password. but it didn't. I guess i did'nt pass the acid test.
So I used my lycos email, it sent me a password but then the password won't work
